You take a fine piece of machinery like a watch, and let every piece of that machinery work in harmony, and it'll keep perfect time. But when one piece gets one way, and one another, it won't keep time. No matter how good the jewels are, it's all got to be unified together. That's God's purpose, for us to unify together and be one.
The walk with Christ is an individual walk. You walk, you stand alone with you and God alone. Not you and the pastor, you and God alone. Not you and the deacon. Sometimes you and your wife, you and your husband, but you and God alone. You stand alone on your convictions. Salvation is not a church affair. It's an individual affair.
He don't want ten percent of your money, so much as He wants your time, your talent, your testimony, and all that you are to be given into His hands, so He can control you. He wants to be your Lord; not only your Saviour, but your Lord--lordship, to govern you.
